FOREWORD 



According to a recent New York Times article the Chicago Cluster is "an ex- 
periment in theological education that many seminary experts believe to be the 
most broad-based and potentially influential design in the nation." After men- 
tioning several dther cooperative programs the author added that "none has 
created quite the attraction that the Chicago Cluster has generated." 

Why this attraction? 

Because the Chicago Cluster is broad-based. That is one reason. Evangelicals, 
Catholics, Liberal Protestants, Mainline Protestants in actual cross- registration suf- 
ficient to provide opportunity for serious dialogue in numerous courses. Great 
varieties in personnel — in race, sex, nationality, age, theological understanding, etc. 
Yet each of the nine schools provides its own educational matrix and has as its pur- 
pose preparation for a particular denomination and tradition. And all the schools 
concentrate upon preparation for professional ministry. 

Thus a student is invited into a richly varied context and an ecumenical 
fellowship in order to undertake disciplined intellectual effort and serious for- 
mation for the ministry of a particular church. 

This past year there were well over 1000 instances of cross-registration, which is 
a good sign that students are finding the value in a wide range of choice as they 
shape their own best educational experiences. 

One unique feature of the Chicago "experiment in theological education" is the 
Areas of Concentration, four or more opportunities each year to specialize for a 
term, with the outstanding faculty resources from nine schools, in such areas of 
ministry as: Personal Transformation, Social Transformation, Celebration, Cross- 
Cultural Communication, Teaching and Preaching. 

Other features of the Cluster in terms of academic offerings constitute the first 
part of this book. Enriched library offerings through cooperation, ecumenical wor- 
ship, outstanding visiting lecturers, and a number of other events and programs 
enrich the educational milieu for students of the Cluster schools. 

Newly developed to begin with the 1978-79 academic year is a significant 
cooperative agreement with Spertus College of Judaica, located in the Chicago 
loop, which promises to strengthen Cluster contacts with Jewish educators and to 
enrich the opportunities for Cluster people to study Judaica in depth through free 
cross-registration, free access to library materials, and interchange of professors. 

Both as an ecumenical community and as an educational consortium the 
Chicago Cluster shows signs of vitality and growth which translate into an ex- 
citing and enriching context for the study of theology and for preparation for 
ministry.

Executive Director

CLUSTER INSTITUTIONS 

CHICAGO CLUSTER OF THEOLOGICAL SCHOOLS 

The Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools is an ecumenical association of six 
Protestant and three Roman Catholic seminaries. While preserving their legal 
autonomy and denominational integrity, the schools espouse common com- 
mitments to provide graduate professional education of the highest order in 
equipping men and women for leadership as ministers, priests, and laypersons in 
serving the world and the church. 

Such common commitments involve educational, theological, and financial pur- 
poses. Educationally, the Cluster reflects the purpose of its member schools to 
maximize the scope and depth of excellence in theological preparation made 
possible by the coordinated sharing and development of resources such as 
faculties, libraries, auxiliary services, physical plants, and funds for new and 
ongoing programs. Theologically, the Cluster reflects the purpose of its member 
schools to prepare leaders whose identities are both rooted in their respective con- 
fessional and ecclesial traditions and informed by appreciation of the richness of 
ecumenical and interfaith perceptions of divine concern for the world. Financially, 
the Cluster reflects the purpose of its member schools to obtain the best educational 
return on the investment of funds entrusted to their stewardship by realizing fiscal 
economies through consolidated institutional purchasing and through coordinated 
elimination of unnecessary duplication of resources. 

The Cluster was organized in 1970 and incorporated as a not-for-profit cor- 
poration in 1971. Of its eight founding institutions, five Protestant schools 
represented a corresponding number of denominations and three Roman Catholic 
schools represented or officially served eight religious communities and one 
diocese. Since the Cluster's formation, these founding schools have officially been 
joined by nine additional Roman Catholic religious communities and by another 
Protestant seminary. Jewish presence and studies have been provided during these 
years through cooperating institutions. 

Six of the nine member schools are grouped closely together on the south side of 
Chicago adjacent to the University of Chicago. Two are located on contiguous 
campuses in west suburban Oak Brook and Lombard and one is situated in the 
southwest suburb of Lemont. 

The Cluster's diverse and extensive networks of resources for theological 
education are unparalleled in the Midwest and are among the most outstanding in 
North America. The nine Cluster schools offer a variety of academic and 
professional degrees at the master's and doctoral levels, and programs of con- 
tinuing education for clergy and laity. The almost 1,400 Cluster students have ac- 
cess to resources such as those represented by 175 faculty (of whom 130 are full- 
time), including 9 blacks, 22 women, and 8 Hispanics; more than 450 courses an- 
nually; library collections of some 800,000 volumes and 1,700 currently-received 
periodicals; contemporary electronic media equipment (including portable and 
studio video capabilities) and modern language lab facilities; and three centers for 
specialized research and ministry dealing, respectively, with religion and science, 
the church and urban-industrial society, and theology and ministry in global per- 
spective. 

Beyond the resources of the Cluster are those of six other Chicago-area 
theological schools upon which Cluster students may draw, together with the vast 
resources of numerous institutions of higher learning and innumerable 
organizations and agencies of a religious, humanitarian, cultural or scientific 
character in and about the metropolitan environs.

CLUSTER AREAS OF CONCENTRATION 

Introduction 

Among a variety of cooperative enterprises, tl;ie Cluster offers six unique 
programs of education for ministry which draw in an integrated manner upon the 
resources of its member schools and the metropolitan Chicago area. These six 
Cluster Areas of Concentration are Personal Transformation, Social Trans- 
formation, Celebration, Cross-cultural Communication, and Interpretation and 
Communication: Teaching and Interpretation and Communication: Preaching. 
Brief identification of the major aspects of the planning process by which these 
programs have been developed will highlight their distinctive features. 

I. The Mandate for Planning 

The six Areas of Concentration represent the present stage of development in 
a process of several years of long range academic planning. Such planning in- 
cluded the combined efforts of faculty, students, and staff who accepted the 
challenge to develop "a plan which will make the Cluster more than a 'coor- 
dinating instrumentality' " and "a blueprint for doing better together what we 
cannot achieve alone and for creating new and better styles of theological 
education ... or of improving the styles we already follow." 

II. The Basis of Planning 

All such planning has incorporated the principle of differential participation 
at the level of both the individual school and the individual student. At the 
institutional level each seminary retains full control over its own academic 
program, including: (1) the determination of the nature, scope, and manner 
of fulfilling the requirements which its own students must complete in their 
home school; and (2) the determination of whether and in what manner it 
wishes to participate as an institution, or wishes its students to participate, in 
the Cluster Areas of Concentration. (Differential participation at the level of 
the individual student will be noted below.) 

III. The Paramenters of Planning 

With such common basis for planning as background, other crucial issues 
emerged. The decisions made regarding these fundamental issues constitute 
the planning parameters within which the Areas of Concentration have been 
shaped. 

A. The Curricular Model 

Since each school in the Cluster continues to offer its own introductory 
and advanced requirements related to such matters as denominational 
and confessional identity, spiritual formation, and ordination, the 
Cluster Areas of Concentration are not designed as a core curriculum in 
which all beginning students in each of the schools are expected to par- 
ticipate. Rather, the Areas of Concentration are designed as intermediate 
and advanced elective offerings which are open to students who have 
completed at least one year of theological education and who have 
satisfied such other prerequisites as may be appropriate in a particular 
Area. 

B. The Organizing Principle 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to transcend the personal and 

14 



professional fragmentation which frequently accompanies educational 
experiences which are circumscribed by a particular discipline or field or 
by a particular ministerial role or setting. Therefore, the concentrations 
have been organized in terms of broad areas of functional competence 
which are relevant to a variety of ministerial roles and settings and which 
are dependent upon the integration of performance and insights from a 
variety of disciplines. 

C. The Defining Educational Characteristic 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to foster maximum feasible in- 
corporation of the following interfaces: 

1. instructional interface — integration of insights from a variety of 
disciplines and fields, both classical and practical, through the 
assistance of faculty teams whose members represent such expertise; 

2. contextual interface — integration of theory and practice through the 
utilization of action-reflection styles of learning wherein students 
engage in and reflect upon ministries of various kinds with the 
assistance of peer consultation and professional supervision; 

3. formational interface — integration of the student's personal identity 
and professional identity, wherein understandings, attitudes, values 
and skills appropriate to each are experienced and perceived as 
mutually interdependent; 

4. professional interface — clarification of the student's professional iden- 
tity as minister (e.g., role, status, authority) in relation to members of 
other professions and occupations which represent corresponding areas 
of functional competence; 

5. ecumenical interface — inclusion of students and faculty representing 
diverse theological and ecclesiological traditions; and 

6. institutional interface — inclusion of students and faculty representing 
two or more institutions in the Cluster, and the utilization of in- 
stitutional resources outside the Cluster. 

D. The Defining Structural Characteristics 

1. Differential Student Participation 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to be sufficiently flexible to 
enable students with varying degrees of interest and curricular freedom 
to participate in one or more such programs in the pursuit of several 
types of educational and ministerial objectives : 

a. to develop a generalized focus of competence which may (1) serve 
to inform and enrich other functional competencies required of 
"generalists" in a variety of ministries or (2) serve as a general foun- 
dation upon which the specialized competence required for 
ministries in research and scholarship may subsequently be built; 

b. to develop a more specialized focus of competence which may (1) 
provide an organizing center for other areas of competence required 
of generalists, (2) provide necessary preparation for those whose 
primary, if not exclusive, form of ministry will correspond to one 
of the areas of concentration, or (3) provide a more specialized 

15 



foundation upon which the additional competencies required of 
researchers and scholars may be subsequently built; and 

c. to develop a more individualized focus of competence which may 
not correspond wholly to either of the foregoing patterns but which 
best serves the particular student. 

Functional Standardization 

The Areas of Concentration are designed to be sufficiently stan- 
dardized to provide a functional degree of educational coherence and 
administrative compatibility. The several Units which will be offered 
during the current year are described in the following pages. 



CCTS 1-500 PERSONAL TRANSFORMATION : INTENSIVE UNIT I

2 or 3 Full Courses Credit Professor of Pastoral Theology 

Wednesday, 9:00 A.M. - 9:00 P.M. Chicago Theological Seminary 

Thursday, 9:00 A.M. -12 Noon Louis Arceneaux, CM. 

Enrollment limited to 20 Assistant Professor of Sacramental 

Initial Session at CTS and Pastoral Theology 

DeAndreis Institute of Theology 
Margaret H. Steam 
Minister 

University Church (Disciples of 
Christ and United Church of 
Christ) and 
Co-Director 

Porter Foundation, University of 
Chicago 

I. Nature of the Unit 

Intensive Unit I is an in-depth experience in a learning-transforming com- 
munity for students who wish to acquire intermediate levels of competence in 
helping individuals and face-to-face groups more fully to actualize their 
potential through multi-faceted growth models. It is envisioned that all stu- 
dents regardless of their previous experience, can grow, try out new ways of 
behavior for enabling growth, teach others, explore new theories and be 
members of the community. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which 
students will receive two or three full courses credit. With the ap- 
proval of the respective institutions in which they are matriculated, students 
who are involved in the Unit may also enroll in one or two additional cour- 
ses. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of Intensive Unit I include the following: 

A. to assist students to develop a pastoral theological theory and research 

methodology relative to personal transformation which is grounded in 

the classical theological disciplines (Bible, history, ethics, and theology) 

and which is informed by dialogue with the history of the cure of souls, 

16 



contemporary theory and practice in pastoral counseling and clinical 
pastoral education, and relevant secular disciplines; 

B. to assist students to acquire direct personal experience of selected modes 
of personal transformation; and 

C. to assist students to acquire appropriate levels of competence in the uses 
of various modes of personal transformation. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are three principal components in Intensive Unit I : a learning- 
transforming community, ministry placements, and try-out events. 

A. A Learning-Transforming Community 

The faculty and students will be members in a learning-transforming 
commjunity. The process of building such a community will begin with a 
five-day founding experience during January. The experience will be 
held in an appropriate retreat setting offering opportunities for recreation 
as well as interaction. 

During this time group covenants for the quarter will be developed and 
theoretical and practical inputs will be organized. Individual student 
covenants, which will also be developed at this time, will include the 
identification of the specific personal and professional skills and 
theoretical understandings on which one wants to work during the quar- 
ter. With permission of the faculty member(s) involved, students may 
also design their individual covenants to include required work which 
they would normally be expected to complete through another course; 
upon fulfillment of their covenants to the satisfaction of the faculty mem- 
ber(s) students would have fulfilled all or part of the course requirement. 

During the subsequent weeks the total group will meet from 9:00 A.M. 
to 9:00 P.M. on Wednesdays and from 9:00-12:00 noon on Thursdays, 
possibly away from the Cluster. (Within these scheduled class sessions 
students enrolled for two full courses credit may negotiate appropriately 
reduced involvement.) Sub-groups/learning teams will also work together 
at other times on common interests, projects, theories, skill training, and 
personal growth. 

The learning-transforming community will be engaged in four continuing 
activities: 

1. Acquiring and developing theory, content, and skills related to per- 
sonal transformation. 

The theoretical inputs and content on growth and change will be 
wide-ranging and will be dependent upon the covenants established by 
the individual members and/or group. Illustrative possibilities in- 
clude: prayer, spiritual direction, meditation. Yoga, and demon- 
ology; theological understandings of grace, reconciliation. Chris- 
tian community, confession, justification, redemption, and ethics; 
the meaning of the biblical themes, experiences, and words in the 
context of personal transformation and contemporary life; the 
relationship between piety and activism — personal and social trans- 
formation; theories of personality and human development; the 

17 



human potential movement, including Gestalt Therapy, Transactional 
Analysis, encounter, psychosynthesis, and bio-energetics; and 
therapeutic models such as psychoanalysis and ego-psychology. 

2. Experiencing of one's own growth and of enabling others to grow, 
both within the community and in try-out with others outside. 

3. Reflecting upon the experience and theory. 

4. Evaluating the ongoing process and the life of the community. 

Evaluative decisions will be agreed upon communally within the 
following general guidelines; a paper or project indicating integration of 
theory and skills, as well as self-evaluation, peer evaluation, and super- 
visory evaluation, will serve as bases for evaluation at the end of the 
Unit. 

B. Ministry Placements 

It is expected that all students will be involved in some form of ministry 
which provides leadership experience in personal transformation and that 
such involvement will be utilized in the Unit. Students without access to 
such involvements will be assisted to find appropriate placement during 
the quarter in which the Unit is offered. Students who desire to do so 
will also be assisted to find appropriate placement in the quarter 
preceding the Unit. 

C. Try-out Events 

In addition to the experiences of leadership which are expected of them 
within the Unit and within their respective placements, students will be 
provided opportunity to become team leaders with faculty members in 
designing, executing, and evaluating short-term personal transformation 
events for other persons and groups. Possibilities for try-outs may in- 
clude such organizations, groups and occasions as the following: 
Cluster, churches, lay people, house church weekends, spiritual week- 
ends, and experiential theology weekends. 

IV. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students (1) who have completed one or more years of theological 
education; (2) who have had some of the following experience and training 
(one or more quarters of Clinical Pastoral Education; laboratory experiences 
in small groups, personal growth, etc.; basic courses in personal counseling 
and group work); and (3) who have obtained the approval both of the 
school in which they are matriculated and of the Personal Transformation 
teaching team. Approval of the teaching team should be requested through 
an application form which may be obtained from the office of the registrar at 
each school. 



All students who have obtained appropriate approval for admission should register 
for the Unit during the registration period which will be held at each school during 
the week of February 19-23, 1979.

CCTS 1-520 SOCIAL TRANSFORMATION: INTENSIVE UNIT I 

Spring Quarter, 1979 Carl 5. Dudley 

1 Full Course Professor of Church and Community 

Friday, 9:00 A.M. -12:30 P.M. McCormick Theological Seminary 

Enrollment limited to 25 Earl I. Durham 

Initial Session at MTS Assistant Professor, School of Social 

Service Administration 
University of Chicago 
Marjorie Tuite, O.P. 

Coordinator of Ministerial Program 
Jesuit School of Theology in Chicago 

I. Nature of the Unit 

This unit examines specifically the social justice dimension of ministry. It is 
designed for those students who out of an institutional base (church or agen- 
cy) are concerned with the transformation of social structures within the 
framework of Judeo-Christian values. 

The unit consists of a one-quarter sequence of involvement for which 
students will receive one full course credit. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of the unit include the following: 

A. to assist students to develop an understanding of the interrelationships 
between Christian faith and the ministry of social justice, including the 
insights of biblical, historical, ethical, theological and social science 
disciplines; 

B. to assist students to understand and develop disciplines for strategy and 
tactics of social action; 

C. to assist students to understand the ways in which one's own beliefs, 
attitudes and values affect a ministry of social change. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are three principal components: theoretical presentations, integrative 
seminars, and experiences in social change. 

A. Theoretical Presentations 

The theoretical presentations will deal with four general areas and their 
interrelationships; tactics and strategy for social change; social theory 
and voluntary associations; the Bible, theology, and social change; and 
historical and ethical analysis of the role of the church in relation to 
social issues in America. 

B. Integrative Seminars 

Students will share the leadership of seminars to integrate theory and 
theology, strategy and tactics, in particular areas of social transformation. 
Integrative seminar will be conducted at the site of the ministry and with 
the people most involved whenever possible. 

C. Experience in Social Change 

Experiences in social change are open to the student during the course, 

19 



and/or in the summer following. Or students may have had a significant 
experience in a ministry for social justice prior to this course. These ex- 
periences will be used as a point of reference for learning in the course. 

In addition to churches, placement possibilities include the following: 
educational institutions (public, private, and alternative schools and 
colleges and universities); private and governmental agencies concerned 
with mental health, medical care, racial justice, women's rights, welfare, 
and housing; penal institutions and agencies related to the criminal 
justice system; community organizations; financial and investment in- 
stitutions; the Alliance to End Repression, etc. 

IV. Admission 

Open to students who have completed one or more years of theological 
education and who have obtained the approval of the school in which they 
are matriculated. 

Open also to others with backgrounds in theological and sociological 
disciplines and/or in social change experience who have obtained the ap- 
proval both of the school in which they are matriculated and of the Social 
Transformation teaching team. 

Approval of the student's prior or proposed field experience in social trans- 
formation should be obtained before the completion of registration for the 
course. Such approval should be requested from a member of the Social 
Transformation teaching team. 

All students who have obtained appropriate approval for admission should 
register for the Unit during the registration period which will be held at each 
school during the week of February 19-23, 1979. 

CCTS 1-540 CELEBRATION : INTENSIVE UNIT I 

(Not offered 1978-79) 

I. Nature of the Unit 

Intensive Unit I is an experience in a learning-celebrating community for the 
advanced student who wishes to become an ARTIST-INTERPRETER-IN- 
STIGATOR of religious celebration. The phrase "artist-interpreter-instigator" 
indicates that the objectives of the Unit go beyond assisting the student to 
acquire the ability to function as leader of public worship which is charac- 
teristically expected of all ministers. The phrase "religious celebration" in- 
cludes both the traditional forms of worship and also paraliturgical and other 
forms of communal celebration in the Judeo-Christian tradition. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which students 
will receive two or three full courses credit. With the approval of the respec- 
tive institutions in which they are matriculated, students who are in- 
volved in the Unit may also enroll in one or two additional courses. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aim of Intensive Unit I is to assist the student to engage in the 
crucial acts of becoming/growing as an artist-interpreter-instigator, viz. : 



20 



I 



A. to experience and comprehend how communal celebration bursts out of a 
people from the events of their common life, and from intensive lived 
moments of individual persons; 

B. to experience communal celebration as a mobilization of expressive arts 
and spontaneity; and 

C. to learn to share in the common experience and felt understandings of an 
actual people, especially the People of God, in such a way as to enable 
them to transform their lived moments into communal symbol and fresh 
communal celebration. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are four principal strands in Intensive Unit I: expressive arts, basic 
theory of celebration, clinical experience, and reflection and evaluation. The 
ministerial preparation of the student will be integrated in terms of these 
strands through the use of various theological and non-theological disciplines 
and various educational methodologies. 

A. Expressive Arts 

The expressive arts will engage and be engaged by the community 
through two related avenues: a Creative Expression Workshop and an 
Expressive Arts Seminar. 

1. Creative Expression Workshop 

The faculty and students will be members in a learning-celebrating 
community. The process of building such a community will be 
initiated with a five-day founding event at a non-Cluster site. The 
founding event will include a Creative Expression Workshop, which 
will begin with an intensive exposure to some basic human experience 
(e.g., joy, pain, loneliness, hope, grief, etc.) Members of the com- 
munity will then express this experience in significant art forms and 
experience how other artists have expressed it. 

2. Expressive Arts Seminar 

During subsequent weeks the regular activities of the community will 
include an Expressive Arts Seminar in which members will share and 
possess each other's "mini-celebrations" and the work of rep- 
resentative artists. In this seminar members will work with various 
forms of expressive art in accord with their ability, e.g., drama, 
dance, music, painting, sculpture, song, celebrative preaching, pho- 
tography, oral interpretation, creative writing, communications 
media, and staging environment, 

B. Basic Theory of Celebration 

Members of the community will endeavor to lay solid theoretical founda- 
tions for celebration. Other resource persons will be utilized periodi- 
cally. Areas of study include the phenomenology of celebration, symbol- 
ism and celebration, analysis of classic/ contemporary examples of cel- 
ebration, and structure and design of celebration. 

C. Clinical Experience 

Each student will be involved with a group outside the Cluster schools 
for the purpose of: 

1. Witnessing the process by which lived moments come to peak ex- 
pression in celebration in the group (first month), and 

21 



2. Developing- teaching them to move further in celebration experience 
and life-style (last two months). 

D. Reflection and Evaluation

I. Rationale 

The church is at the threshold of a new era. The growing thrust toward 
unity on the economic and political planes, the deeper realization of cultural 
pluralism within that unity, and the greater involvement in the struggle for 
human dignity have all given new thrust and direction to the church's task in 
the world today. 

The global scope and character of the problems demand an equal response. It 
is of the greatest importance that Christians of diverse national, racial, class 

22 



I 



and theological backgrounds, perspective and commitments find ways to 
listen to and learn from one another. If American theological education is to 
make creative contributions to such issues as racism, the use and distribution 
of the world's wealth and resources, the struggles for human liberation and 
the development of societal structures which are more open and just, it must 
do so as a community which has learned to reflect and act in an international 
context. 

For some the response will go further. They desire to be persons of dialogue, 
to live a precarious existence between different cultural worlds. They aim to 
spend their lives, or part of them, with people of another culture, discovering 
ways to think and work together in Christ about the fundamental problems 
which confront the entire human family in relation to peace, justice and sur- 
vival. 

II. Nature of the Unit 
The concentration has a double major thrust which will serve the needs and 
goals of a wide variety of students. On the one hand, it will give high 
priority to those students who desire to work or study in another cultural en- 
vironment and will help them acquire beginning levels of competence for ef- 
fective communication in cultures and subcultures other than their own. 

At the same time, the concentration will provide a wider range of students 
the opportunity to experience in a unique way the cultural assumptions and 
limits of their theological thinking, and to lay the foundation for a broader 
international, interracial and ecumenical understanding, concern and com- 
mitment both in their theological education as well as in their further 
ministry. 

III. Aims of the Unit 
The general aims of Intensive Unit I include the following: 

A. to sensitize students to the diversity of cultural expression; 

B. to assist students to develop skills in the analysis of culture and com- 
munication and to acquire a beginning competence in cross-cultural com- 
munication; 

C. to lay a foundation for students' understanding of, concern for, and 
cooperation in issues of international scope and character; 

D. to help students to interpret their experience to the wider church in order 
to contribute to an international perspective on mission and ministry. 

IV. Structure of the Unit 
There are three principal components in Intensive Unit I: basic theory of 
culture and communication, field placements, integrative discussions ("de- 
briefings"). (Within the scheduled activities students enrolled for two full 
courses credit may negotiate appropriately reduced involvement.) 
A. Basic Theory (Four weeks: March 26-April 20) 

k. The theoretical presentations will focus on such matters as understanding 

I the ways in which cultural factors influence experiencing and sym- 

bolization, thereby influencing the ways in which communication is 

given and received; understanding the nature of any culture through a 
representative examination of selected contrasting cultures and sub- 
cultures in the light of cultural anthropological perspectives; un- 
derstanding the theological issues involved in the cultural conditioning of 

23 



all experience and symbolization; understanding the nature of the com- 
munication process from theological, psychological and sociological per- 
spectives; and understanding what it means theologically to com- 
municate the meaning of the Christian faith. 

Such understanding will be addressed through the following topics: 

1. Culture: Nature and Origin; Enculturation — Ethnocentrism — Preju- 
dice; Culture Dynamics: Persistance and Change 

2. My Culture: Historical Background, Common Characteristics 

3. Communication Theory : Verbal — dialogue; Non-verbal 

4. Obstacles to Communication: Historical; Cultural 

5. Communication of the Gospel: 

a. Why: Theology of Mission 

b. How: Evangelization: Dialogue (Religious); Witness; Worship 

6. Global Awareness: Peace and Justice; Population Growth; Develop- 
ment 

7. Introduction to specific cultures of field placements. 

B. Field Placements (Three weeks: April 23-May 11) 

The field placement is an integral part of the Unit. It is designed to offer 
students an opportunity to practice and develop skills and to test theories 
of cross-cultural communication in an authentic or simulated cross- 
cultural life situation. 

During the 1979 Spring term, the type of field placement especially 
recommended will be a three-week intensive "live-in" experience. Other 
types of field placement will be available to those who are able to com- 
mit themselves to some specific cross-cultural situation for at least two 
academic quarters. These latter placements would continue throughout 
the Spring quarter, but with greater intensity during April 23-May 11. 

Recent placements have included the following: 

1. East Africa 

2. Chicano-Indian : on location in rural New Mexico 

3. Latino: in Chicago area 

4. Black: in Chicago area 

All field placements embody the following features: 

1. an intensive community live-in experience in a cross-cultural situa- 
tion; 

2. an opportunity for the practice of cross-cultural skills; 

3. planned supervision and guidance; 

4. availability of a peer group, reflector group or other support group. 

C. Integrative Discussions (Two weeks: May 14-25) 

Following the three-weeks of intensive field placement, students will 
engage in a two-week, post-field "de-briefing" period during which their 
cross-cultural field experiences will be reported on, analyzed and 
critically evaluted from the standpoint of personal learning and growth. 
Every student will be expected to have kept a complete diary (log) of 
field experiences. 

A clear expectation of the "de-briefing" period is that all students will 
evaluate and process their field experience in such a way as to make con- 
crete plans for application in terms of ministry. These plans may be of an 
interpretive or vocational nature.

V. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students who have completed one or more years of theological 
education and who have obtained the approval of the school in which they 
are matriculated. 

All students who have obtained appropriate approval for admissions should 
register for the Unit during the registration period which will be held at each 
school during the week of February 19-23, 1979. 



CCTS 1-580 INTERPRETATION AND COMMUNICATION: 
TEACHING : INTENSIVE UNIT I 

I. Nature of Unit (Not offered 1978-79) 

Intensive Unit I is designed for advanced students who wish to become in- 
creasingly competent in (1) understanding and integrating basic orientations 
to the substance and style(s) of interpreting and communicating Christian 
faith which are operative in their own life situations and in those of represen- 
tative groups with whom the church engages in ministry; (2) interpreting in 
their historical and contemporary contexts selected dimensions of the Judeo- 
Christian tradition and the modern world which are relevant to such life 
situations; and (3) communicating, and assisting others to communicate, ef- 
fectively through teaching in the light of such understandings and interpretive 
abilities. The concentration is intended to be of value to students who plan to 
engage in a variety of teaching ministries, e.g. in local churches as pastors or 
directors of educational programs; in public or parochial schools as teachers 
or superivsors of teachers; in institutions of higher education as campus 
ministers or professors; and in organizations and agencies of various kinds as 
educational consultants. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which students 
will receive two or three full courses credit. With the approval of the 
respective institutions in which they are matriculated, students who are in- 
volved in the Unit may enroll in one or two additional courses. 

II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of the Unit include the following: 

A. to assist students to enhance their understandings of the nature and 
dimensions of the hermeneutical task in relation to the life situations of 
people, to the contemporary world, and to the Judeo-Christian tradition 
in light of pertinent philosophical, theological, scientific and artistic per- 
spectives; 

B. to assist students to develop a growing understanding and appreciation 
of (1) the predicaments and possibilities which characterize the life 
situations of individuals and groups, (2) the resources of the Judeo- 
Christian tradition and of other sources of insight which are relevant to 
such predicaments and possibilities, and (3) the teaching-learning theories 
and methods which may be employed to relate these resources to the 
human predicaments and possibilities; 

C. to enable students to function effectively and collegially in enhancing 
specific ministries of interpretation and communication through 
teaching, and in assisting others to function in similar manner; 

25 



D. to assist students to integrate (1) their understandings of the substance 

and style(s) which are appropriate to the relevant interpretation and 

communication of Christian faith in relation to human predicaments and 

- possibilities with (2) their personal and professional self-understanding 

and functioning. 

III. Structure of the Unit 

There are three components in Intensive Unit I: an interpretive seminar, 
supervised ministry placements, and an integrative seminar. 

A. Interpretive Seminar 

In the interpretive seminar students and faculty will collegially develop 
teaching-learning activities and, as deemed appropriate, covenants which 
bring their several unique concerns and competencies to bear upon the 
achievement of the general aims of the Unit — particularly those 
represented in A and B above. However, in order to insure the 
availability of certain teaching-learning activities and resources which 
participants may choose to employ but which could not with certainty be 
developed after the Unit has begun, the teaching team has taken the 
initiative to develop two broad sets of complementary options (and their 
correlative networks of resources) which will be discussed fully by all 
Unit participants before final decisions are made regarding their adoption 
and implementation. 

If the first broad option is adopted and implemented, early in the Unit 
students will be assisted by the teaching team to acquire familiarity with 
and experience in employing fundamental principles and methods of 
identifying, analyzing, and evaluating basic orientations to the substance 
and style of interpreting and communicating Christian faith through 
teaching. Special attention may be given to acquiring such familiarity 
and experience through an exploration of how these orientations are em- 
bodied, for example, by Unit participants, by persons or periods of 
historic significance in participants' denominations and/ or other groups, 
and by certain contemporary Chicagoland churches of various 
denominations and races. In carrying out such explorations through 
several observation visits to the selected churches, whose ministries are 
characterized by unique creativities, consistencies, or constituencies, 
students will be assisted by local clergy and laity in identifying, 
analyzing, and evaluating their respective orientations to content and 
method of interpretation and communication of Christian faith through 
teaching. 

B. Supervised Ministry Placements 

The supervised ministry placements are designed to foster collegial 
realization of the several general aims of the Unit — especially that 
represented in C above. 

If the second of the previously-mentioned broad options which have 
been developed by the teaching team is adopted and implemented, 
student teams (comprised of several members each) will be assisted to 
negotiate placements in settings in which they will serve during the Unit. 
For most student teams, it is anticipated that such placement will be in a 
local church (or ecumenical and interracial cluster of churches) in the 
vicinity of Hyde Park or Oak Brook — Lemont. 

26 



It is not contemplated that student teams will be assigned to provide staff 
leadership for existing educational programs of the church /cluster. 
Rather, team members will serve as educational resource persons or con- 
sultants, together with clergy and laity in the respective settings, in a 
joint endeavor (1) to identify and to assess the effectiveness of the orien- 
tation(s) to the substance and style of interpreting and communicating 
Christian faith which are currently employed in selected teaching-learn- 
ing situations, (2) to identify critical needs which can be addressed 
through enhancing the substance and style of such interpretation and 
communication, (3) to design one or more significant teaching-learning 
events to address such needs; and (4) to provide appropriate leadership 
and/or direction in carrying out such event(s). The number of such events 
to be designed and led or directed by each student team will be deter- 
mined by consultation among the student team, the teaching team, and 
the church/cluster representatives. 

As their respective schedules permit, and as the respective placement 
situations indicate, members of the teaching team will participate on 
location with student teams in carrying out the foregoing functions. 
However, it is expected that during the course of the Unit a member of 
the teaching team will participate appropriately in such functions in 
relation to at least one of each student teams' teaching-learning events. 

Through consultative and supervisory relationships with student peers, 
faculty, and church/cluster clergy and laity, student team members will 
have opportunity to develop skills in evaluating process, product, and 
program dimensions of their collective experience. Such dimensions may 
include, respectively, (1) assessment of the planning and interaction 
among themselves and between themselves and those with whom they 
are involved in the respective placement settings; (2) assessment of the 
respective teaching-learning events; and (3) assessment of the con- 
tributions of the Unit-as-a-whole to the equipping of student-s for in- 
terpretive and communicative ministries through teaching and also to the 
enhancing of the respective churches'/ clusters' ministries of this kind. 

Students who wish to explore the possibility of a year-long placement in 
a setting appropriate to the Unit, or who wish to explore the possibility 
of a non-church placement during the Unit should contact the teaching 
team early in the Fall quarter. 

C. Integrative Seminar 

In the integrative seminar students will have opportunity to /pursue 
realization of the several general aims of the course — particularly that 
represented in item D above. More specifically, it will provide occasion 
for students to engage in processes of further unifying conceptual, 
emotional, and behavioral dimensions of experience which bear upon the 
development of their personal and professional self-understandings and 
competencies as interpreters and communicators of Christian faith 
through teaching. By such means as may commend themselves to Unit 
participants, effort will be made to draw together experiences in the in- 
tegrative seminar (including observation visits to selected churches) and 
in the respective placement settings. Among such possible means is 



27 



student utilization of the teaching team as resource persons and con- 
sultants in planning, implementing, and evaluating the teaching-learning 
event(s) in which the several teams are involved in their respective 
placement settings. Case studies, audio and video recordings, and in- 
dividual and team evaluation procedures such as those noted earlier will 
also be available to provide constructive feedback and guidance from a 
variety of complementary perspectives for continuing development and 
integration. 

IV. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students who have completed two or more years of theological 
education and who have obtained the approval of the school in which they 
are matriculated. 

Open also to students with backgrounds in theological and educational 
disciplines and /or with teaching experience who have completed one year of 
theological education and who have obtained the approval both of the 
school in which they are matriculated and of the Interpretation and Com- 
munication teaching team. Approval of the teaching team should be 
requested through an application form which may be obtained from the of- 
fice of the registrar at each school.

I. Nature of Unit 

Intensive Unit I is designed to enable students to achieve competence and ef- 
fectiveness in the preaching task (1) through the interpretation of biblical 
foundations, theological traditions, and contemporary events and human ex- 
periences; and (2) through the functional integration of the interpretive 
task in the context of sermon formulation and proclamation. 

The Unit consists of one intensive quarter of involvement for which 
students will receive two full courses credit. With the approval of the respec- 
tive institutions in which they are matriculated, students who are in- 
volved in the Unit may also enroll in one or two additional courses. 



28 



II. Aims of the Unit 

The general aims of Intensive Unit I are : 

A. to assist students to integrate the exegeses of Scripture and theological 
traditions with the exegesis of contemporary realities; 

B. to assist students to clarify and enrich their involvement and iden- 
tification with both the role and content of preaching and the means by 
which it occurs, such as critical analysis of content and reflection upon 
the processes by which preaching happens; 

C. to assist the intensive-mix of students and faculty to become a 
laboratory-model in which the agony and glory of preaching is ex- 
perienced. 

III. Structural Components 

There are five principal components in Intensive Unit I. The scholarly and 
professional preparation of the student will be integrated in terms of these 
components through the use of various theological and functional disciplines 
and various educational methodologies. 

A. Modeling of and participating in the exegeses of Scripture and theology, 
and the exegesis of contemporary human experience; 

B. Researching ways of analyzing Scripture, dynamics by which traditions 
shape theology, and methods of sermon development; 

C. Evaluating critically actual occasions of preaching by students in the 
classroom and in the parish and by selected preachers in the Chicago 
area; 

D. Exploring possibilities of various forms in which proclamation happens, 
such as story telling, conversation, prophetic confrontation, and media; 
and 

E. Ongoing supervision by participating faculty, student peers, and lay per- 
sons. 

IV. Admission to the Unit 

Open to students (1) who have completed one or more years of theological 
education; (2) who have completed at least two courses in biblical studies, 
two courses in history and theological thought, and one course in preaching; 
and (3) who have obtained the approval of the school in which they are 
matriculated. 

All students who have obtained appropriate approval for admission should 
register for the Unit during the registration period which will be held at each 
school during the week of February 19-23, 1979.

CLUSTER PASTORAL CARE 
AND COUNSELING PROGRAM 



L Program Characteristics 

The Cluster program in pastoral care and counseling is cooperatively- 
resourced by the nine member institutions of the Chicago Cluster of 
Theological Schools. Intended primarily for persons seeking the Doctor of 
Ministry degree in pastoral care and counseling through member seminaries, 
the Cluster program is also open to advanced candidates for certain other 
degrees and for non-degree continuing education. 

Through collaborative planning, staffing, and administration by the 
several schools, participants enjoy access (1) to one of the nation's most 
distinguished ecumenical constellations of teachers and researchers in 
pastoral care and counseling, and (2) to an unusually broad range of super- 
vised clinical opportunities sponsored by outstanding religious, health, and 
social service agencies. 

The Cluster program seeks to equip present and future ministers to func- 
tion effectively in various professional roles and institutional settings which 
require particular competence in the theory and practice of pastoral care and 
counseling. The program presupposes or provides a general base in the in- 
terdisciplinary foundations essential to all forms of ministry . Advanced 
specialized study and service in academic and clinical contexts is integrated 
with this general base. 

Participants in the Cluster program in pastoral care and counseling will 
take courses in metropolitan Chicago in order that, through regular contact 
with faculty and supervisors, the academic and clinical goals of the program 
can be optimally realized. Participants may enroll in the program on a part- 
time or full-time basis. 

The Cluster program in pastoral care and counseling is designed to be com- 
patible with participants' concurrent pursuit of training for professional cer- 
tification by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, the 
Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, the American Association of 
Marriage and Family Counselors, and accrediting agencies representing cer- 
tain other areas of competence which are of similar concern to an increasing 
number of religious professionals. 

II. Program Components 

The Cluster program in pastoral care and counseling consists of advanced 
theoretical and clinical components. 

A. Core Seminars 

The theoretical component consists of a three-quarter sequence of core 
seminars team taught by faculty from participating schools. A sequence 
such as the following will be offered each year: 

• Pastoral Care: History and Theology (Fall) 

John W. Stettner (McCormick Theological Seminary) 

Homer U. Ashby, Jr. (Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools) 

• Pastoral Care: Personality Theories and Therapies (Winter) 
Paul R. Swanson (Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago) 



30 



• Pastoral Care: Life Together (Spring) 

Carl D. Schneider (Meadville/Lombard Theological School) 

For course descriptions consult Ministry Studies: Pastoral Care and 
Spiritual Direction offerings: CCTS M-602A, B, C. 

B. Supervised Practica 

The clinical component consists of supervised practica of nine months 
duration in settings affording opportunity for pastoral care and coun- 
seling ministry related to one or more of the following areas of com- 
petence : 

• Care of congregations (interpreting, enhancing, and integrating each 
ministerial function within the congregation from a pastoral care 
perspective) 

• marriage and family counseling 

• individual and group psychotherapy (including perspectives therein af- 

forded by psychoanalysis, Gestalt, transactional analysis, psycho- 
synthesis, and other points of view) 

• geriatric issues 

• alcoholism rehabilitation 

• minority group issues 

• religion and medicine 

• community mental health 

• clinical pastoral education 

Students may develop case material for supervision either in the 
clinical setting of the practicum or in their own work setting. The prac- 
ticum will typically consist of a weekly case conference, a weekly session 
of individual supervision, and didactic sessions as arranged by the super- 
visor. 

For course descriptions consult Ministry Studies: Supervised Ministry 
offerings: CCTS M-620A, B, C through CCTS M-638A, B, C. 

Centers currently approved by the Cluster for supervised practica in- 
clude the following : 

• Alcoholism Treatment Program, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, 
Northwestern University Medical School 

• Billings Hospital, The University of Chicago 

• Center for Religion and Psychotherapy of Chicago 

• Christ Hospital 

• Edgewater-Uptown Community Mental Health Center 

• Pastoral Counseling Ministry Institute 

• Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center 

• Wholistic Health Center 

It is anticipated that other specialized areas of competence and other 
centers will be developed in the future. 

in. Program Participants 

The Cluster program in pastoral care and counseling is offered to four 
groups of participants, who may selectively employ its theoretical and 
clinical components to achieve their respective learning goals within 
guidelines established by the participating schools in which they are enrolled. 

A. Second Professional Degree Candidates 

31 



Ministers with three or more years of experience who are seeking the 
D.Min. in pastoral care and counseling as a second professional degree 
through Chicago Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology at 
Chicago, McCormick Theological Seminary, or Meadville/Lombard 
Theological School may utilize components of the Cluster program in 
completing the required one year of full-time study (or its equivalent in 
part-time study) in residence beyond a first professional degree (M.Div.). 

B. First Professional Degree Candidates 

Advanced ministerial candidates seeking the D.Min. in pastoral care 
and counseling as a first professional degree through Chicago Theological 
Seminary or Meadville/Lombard Theological School may utilize 
components of the Cluster program in completing the required four years 
of full-time study (or its equivalent in part-time study) beyond an un- 
dergraduate baccalaureate degree. 

C. Other Degree Candidates 

A limited number of advanced students seeking other graduate 
professional or academic degrees (e.g., M.Div., S.T.M., Th.D.) through 
any Cluster school may utilize components of the Cluster program in 
pastoral care and counseling as elective options in such degrees. 

D. Non-degree Candidates 

A limited number of ministers with three or more years of experience 
who are seeking non-degree continuing education through any Cluster 
school may utilize components of the Cluster program in pastoral care 
and counseling in achieving their individual learning goals. 

IV, Additional Options 

Significant complementary resources strengthen and enhance the Cluster 
program in pastoral care and counseling. 

A. The Cluster Schools 

Participants in the Cluster program enjoy tuition-free cross-registration 
privileges in all curricular fields of the consortium's nine member 
schools, including access to approximately 40 current offerings in pastoral 
care and counseling. For additional course descriptions consult Ministry 

Studies: Pastoral Care and Spiritual Direction offerings. 

B. The University of Chicago 

Most participants in the Cluster program in pastoral care and coun- 
seling may enroll in two concurrent courses for the price of one at the 
Divinity School and other graduate or professional schools of the 
University of Chicago. 

C. The Chicago Theological Institute 

Most participants may also avail themselves of tuition-free cross- 
registration privileges in the five member schools of the Chicago 
Theological Institute: Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, North 
Park Theological Seminary, Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, 
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, and St. Mary of the Lake Seminary. 



32 



CLUSTER INTERINSTITUTIONAL 
TEAM-TAUGHT COURSES 

In addition to the previously described Areas of Concentration, the Cluster also 
offers team-taught courses which draw in an integrative, but less intensive, manner 
upon the resources of its member schools and the metropolitan Chicago area. 
These courses involve ecumenical and, frequently, interdisciplinary teaching teams, 
and are characterized by concern for students' personal-professional development 
and by concern to draw imaginatively upon the resources of significant persons, 
programs, and settings in the wider community. 

Such courses are especially designed to enable students to experience the 
enriching and stimulating give-and-take of dialogue and service in various 
ecumenical contexts without requiring the larger investment of time and com- 
mitment which are necessitated by the Cluster Areas of Concentration. 

Admission is open to students through the regular cross-registration procedures 
which are operative among the Cluster schools.

Commimicating the Religious Message in an 

Age of Science 

In this course the following goals will guide the 
study: (1) to introduce students to theologies 
and theologians which seek explicitly to address 
the contemporary scientific and technological 
worldview; (2) to acquaint students with basic 
work in philosophy of science and theological 
methodology which are relevant to such 
theological address; and (3) to assist students 
who are already familiar with matters represent- 
ed by goals (1) and (2) to further advance their 
understandings in these and/or related areas. In 
approaching such goals two methods will be 
emphasized: (1) individual tutorial sessions 
which will help the student to advance at 
his/her own pace, to deal with new per- 
spectives, and to prepare a research paper; and 
(2) seminar sessions which will deal with 
readings corresponding to the first two goals 
mentioned above. Readings in theology may in- 
clude issues such as those raised in Peacock's 
Science and the Christian Experiment, Teilhard 
de Chardin's Phenomenon of Man, Cobb's A 
Christian Natural Theology, as well as those 
treated in selected works of the convenors. 
Readings in the methodology and philosophy of 
science may include issues such as those dealt 
with in Gilkey's Religion and the Scientific 
Future, Barbour's Issues in Science and Religion, 
Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, 
Margenau's Open Vistas. Prerequisite: at least 
two courses in systematic or philosophical 
theology, and approval of the convenors. Scien- 
tific background helpful but not necessary.

Advanced Seminar in Theology and the Sciences 

The seminar is designed as a forum for papers 
by theological and scientific faculty and ad- 
vanced students. It seeks to move toward a 
theology which is solidly grounded in the best 
of today's scientific understandings and which 
at the same time may be dynamic in eliciting 
religious feelings and behavior characteristic of 
the best Christian tradition whereby persons are 
led to appreciate the reality of God's sover- 
eignty and grace which are manifest in environ- 
ing nature and in human forms, and to find 
thereby a new meaning, hope, sense of duty, 
and beatific perspective in God's realm. 



Each weekly session will be the occasion for the 
presentation and critical evaluation of one or 
more papers exploring an interpretation of 
historic religious doctrines in the light of the 
sciences. Among the historic religious doctrines 
that may be interpreted are such primary 
Christian categories as God, Creation, Human 
Nature, Sin, Salvation, Church, Revelation, and 
Mission to the World. No specific topic is ex- 
cluded per se, no matter how out of theological 
favor it may presently be or how seemingly in- 
congruous with recent secular doctrine. For the 
seminar, the light of the sciences will be sought 
primarily through focus upon the so-called 
"hard" sciences that have provided a new world 
view or "metaphysics." These sciences include, 
physics, biology, sociobiology, and psycho- 
biology. However, this primary focus does not 
exclude perspectives from the psychosocial 
sciences, which will also be heavily involved. At 
the core of this activity the seminar will explore 
and test a basic hypothesis : that recent scientific 
information suggests that evolving psychobio- 
logical and sociobiological systems require 
religions as value cores, that the traditional 
religion of each culturetype has been selected for 
the same kinds of life-producing wisdom as 
have been selected in the genotypes for all 
animal organisms and societies, and that all of 
this is generated and selected by a creative 
system of dynamic reality far transcending any 
of its creatures. 

Admission for credit: While the seminar is ex- 
pected primarily to involve the presentation of 
papers by faculty and advanced students, ad- 
mission for credit is also open to other students 
whose proposals for a paper to be presented and 
whose background in theology and science is 
deemed satisfactory by the convenors. High per- 
formance in CCTS T-472 may be deemed suf- 
ficient for admission, and capacity to discuss 
critically and to advance themes such as those 
published in Zygon, Journal of Religion and 
Science would provide excellent grounding for 
any participants in the seminar. 

Admission without credit: Participation is also 
open to Cluster students and faculty who have a 
concern to become more informed about and/or 
to participate in this research and development 
program without obligating themselves to meet 
the specific course requirements. Such persons 
should inform one of the convenors in advance 
of their intention to participate in this manner. 



34 



Requirements for students taking the seminar 
for credit will be (1) to present an original paper 
of some 20-30 doublespaced pages (during one 
of the last five weeks of the quarter) on a topic 
approved by the convenors and to defend it suc- 
cessfully during its discussion, and (2) to present 
a one or two-page critical and constructive 
analysis of the proceedings of each of the other 
papers and discussions in the seminar sessions.

The Church's Peace Ministry : Issues and 

Perspectives 

What can the churches contribute to world 
peace? What understandings of world peace 
might guide religious thought and action toward 
a world without war? What theological and 
political standards are involved in setting limits 
and determining priorities for peace activities? 
How can the concern for world peace become a 
regular part of ministry at every level of church 
life? Eight Chicago-area seminary faculty in- 
cluding the instructors of this course have met 
regularly as the curriculum development task 
force of the World Without War Council — Mid- 
west to design a course addressing these 
questions. The course is expected to treat such 
topics as: the global political conditions for 
peace; the means and limits of citizen action for 
peace in the United States, with special em- 
phasis on the role of the churches; and the 
theological basis for, and meanings of, the 
issues of global politics and citizen action.

tion in cultures and subcultures other than their

provide a wider range of students the oppor- 
tunity to experience in a unique way the 



cultural assumptions and limits of their 
theological thinking, and to lay the foundation 
for a broader international, interracial and ecu- 
menical understanding, concern and commit- 
ment both in their theological education as well 
as their further ministry. For remainder of course

CLUSTER INTER-CAMPUS COURSES 

A continuing concern of the Cluster is to enrich the teaching-learning ex- 
periences of students and faculty from each of its member institutions. The Cluster 
therefore seeks to enable students to have increased access to outstanding teachers 
and courses and to groups of students which they would otherwise be unlikely to 
encounter. The Cluster likewise seeks to enable faculty members to participate in 
rewarding teaching relationships with students and colleagues who represent 
traditions and perspectives not customarily encountered in their own institutions. 

A special curricular structure, known as "Cluster Inter-Campus Courses" has 
been created to encourage and facilitate such interchange, especially between urban 
and suburban member schools. Several outstanding electives which are representa- 
tive of various disciplines and heritages in the Cluster are offered at locations which 
constitute an equitable distribution of travel time among the participating students. 
Each course is scheduled to meet only once a week and to avoid rush-hour traffic. 
The first session of each course is held on the campus of the designated instructor. 
Thereafter the number of students enrolled from the respective seminaries provides 
the basis upon which each class will work out an equitable determination regard- 
ing the location and number of future weekly sessions. Such a principle of 
operation permits the location at which each Cluster Inter-Campus Course is of- 
fered to be highly responsive to the level of interest and initiative of students from 
the respective schools. 

Enrollment in all Cluster Inter-Campus Courses is open to students through the 
regular cross-registration procedures which are operative among the Cluster 
schools.

CLUSTER BLACK STUDIES 

The Cluster endeavors to strengthen and to stimulate initiatives on the part of its 
member institutions to the issues posed for theological education and ministry by 
the experiences and perspectives of blacks. An important structural expression of 
this endeavor is the Cluster Black Studies Committee. The Committee exercises 
such leadership functions as the following: (1) to assist blacks of the Cluster in ar- 
ticulating their concerns and to assist Cluster institutions in addressing such con- 
cerns; (2) to design strategies for incorporating issues raised by the experiences and 
perspectives of blacks into the mainstream of the consciousness and curricula of 
the several institutions; (3) to plan activities which educate members of the Cluster 
community regarding the nature and effects of racism and of ways in which it may 
be effectively overcome; (4) and to facilitate the development of resources to fund 
and staff such enterprises as the foregoing. 

Approximately 53 black students are pursuing studies in Cluster schools. 

The several Cluster institutions engage the following black faculty, who 
represent the indicated areas of expertise :

munity is in transition, from the racial changes 
in the center of the cities, to the rural-suburban 
transition on the growing edge, including all the 
aging of communities in between. The course 
will study cases and visit places of transition to 
determine the causes and patterns of changing 
communities. Special attention will be given to 
the positive role of the church in community 
change, and to the negative consequences of 
indecision in the midst of change. Open to 
pastors and laypersons as well as students.

Unit I 

The Intensive Unit has a double major thrust 
which will serve the needs and goals of a wide 
variety of students. On the one hand, it will 
give high priority to those students who desire 
to work or study in another cultural environ- 
ment and will help them acquire beginning levels 
of competence for effective communication in 
cultures and subcultures other than their own. 
At the same time, the concentration will provide 
a wider range of students the opportunity to ex- 
perience in a unique way the cultural assump- 
tions and limits of their theological thinking, 
and to lay the foundation for a broader inter- 
national, interracial and ecumenical under- 
standing, concern and commitment both in their 
theological education as well as in their further 
ministry. For remainder of course description

CLUSTER WOMEN'S ISSUES 

The Cluster undertakes to support and to advocate commitments by its member 
institutions to the issues raised for theological education and ministry by the ex- 
periences and perspectives of women. A significant organizational manifestation of 
this undertaking is the Cluster Women's Issues Committee. With staff support 
from the Cluster Women's Issues Coordinator, the Committee provides such 
leadership functions as the following: (1) to assist women of the Cluster, including 
spouses, in expressing their concerns and to assist Cluster institutions in respon- 
ding to such concerns; (2) to design strategies for incorporating the issues posed by 
the experiences and perspectives of women into the focal awareness and program- 
ming of the various institutions; (3) to plan activities which educate members of 
the Cluster community regarding the nature and effects of sexism and of means by 
which it may be effectively overcome; and (4) to facilitate the development of 
resources to fund and staff such enterprises as the above. Activities through which 
the Committee seeks to serve women and the larger Cluster constituency include 
publication of a periodical, PersonAge; formulation and presentation of specific 
curricular and personnel recommendations related to women's concerns; con- 
sultation and cooperation with women's caucuses and wives' groups in the respec- 
tive Cluster schools; and sponsorship and leadership of such programs and projects 
as conferences, workshops, retreats, orientations, survey research, film and dia- 
logue groups, socials, and student-faculty rap sessions. 

Approximately 232 women students are pursuing studies in Cluster schools. 

The several Cluster institutions engage the following women faculty, who

the issues facing the congregation), and 
homiletical (individual preaching styles and the 
resulting process of communication). The 
methods will include verbal and non-verbal 
sharing, meditation and writing, and use of 
audio- visual equipment as an evaluative tool.

Cluster institutions in responding to such concerns; (2) to frame proposals for in- 
corporating issues represented by the experiences and perspectives of Latinos into 
the understandings and program offerings of the several institutions; (3) to plan 
activities which educate members of the Cluster community regarding the nature 
and effects of ethnic discrimination and of means by which it can be effectively 
overcome; and (4) to facilitate the development of resources to fund and staff such 
enterprises as the above. 

Approximately 31 Latino students are pursuing studies in Cluster schools.

Cross Cultural Communication : Intensive 

Unit I 

The Intensive Unit has a double major thrust 
which will serve the needs and goals of a wide 
variety of students. On the one hand, it will give 
high priority to those students who desire to 
work or study in another cultural environment 
and will help them acquire beginning levels of 
competence for effective communication in 
cultures and subcultures other that their own. 
At the same time, the concentration will provide 
a wider range of students the opportunity to ex- 
perience in a unique way the cultural assump- 
tions and limits of their theological thinking, 
and to lay the foundation for a broader in- 
ternational, interracial and ecumenical un- 
derstanding, concern and commitment both in 
their theological education as well as in their 
further ministry. For remainder of cpurse

Church Programming: What Works Where 

and Why in Congregations 

Effective church programs reflect the needs anc 
commitments of church members in two dimen- 
sions: Congregation size reflects the personal 
relationships of church members; Church typi 
reflects the programmatic expectations of church 
members. The First Church, the ethnic church 
and the neighborhood church, for example, 
appeal to people very differently. The particular 
history of the congregation and of the com- 
munity adds dimensions to the type of church. 
Taken together, congregational size and church 
type reflect the membership expectations which 
determine the range of effective program 
possibilities available to each congregation. 
What works where, and why.

VI. MINISTRY STUDIES 

A. NATURE AND FUNCTIONS OF MINISTRY 

JSTC M-383 

Effective Pastoral Ministry I 

Two theoretical orientations are making im- 
portant contributions to the emerging un- 
derstanding of contemporary ministry: (1) the 
theological discipline through renewed un- 
derstanding of revelation, ecclesiology and the 
variety of ministries in the Christian tradition. 



and (2) the behavioral sciences through a better 
understanding of leadership styles, com- 
munication skills and the strategies of 
organization development. 

This experience-based course will call upon 
these two forces to serve as the context in which 
the participants' awareness of their own 
ministry and confidence in that ministry is 
heightened, and constructive alternatives to 
ineffective styles of ministry are suggested. The 
one-on-one ministerial context will be em- 
phasized. Special attention will be given to the 
assessment and enhancement of the basic skills 
of listening, assertion and self-disclosure. No 
audits. No late registration.

The Theology and Practice of Preaching Grace 

How, as preachers of grace, do we hold creative 
tension, both with what God in Christ has done 
for us and what He demands of us, without 
preaching either cheap grace or works 
righteousness? We begin the study of this cen- 
tral theological problem in preaching by 
examining the relation between God's succor 
(indicative) and God's demand (imperative) in 
the New Testament. The study then broadens to 
investigate the indicative/ imperative relation- 
ship in the thinking of Barth, Brunner, Bult- 
mann, Bonhoeffer, Tillich, Moltmann, H.R. 
Niebuhr, Lehmann, and Fletcher. The class 
examines its own sermons as well as "known" 
American preachers' sermons in light of the

are based on a view of the person as "gifted" 
and "responsible". These traditions present a 
challenge to each person to greater freedom in 
being the person he/she is created to be; they

Jesus 

A basic entry course into the study of the New 
Testament focusing on the first three gospels. In 
lectures and discussion, we concentrate on the 
Gospel of Mark as a literary expression of early 
Christian faith on expressive forms, such as 
parable, saying and pronouncement story, as 
major sources for reconstructing the life and 
faith of early Christianity and the activity of 
Jesus; on the constructive powers of symbol 
and myth in the gospel traditions; on the 
Gospel of Matthew as an early interpretation of 
the gospel genre; on Palestine as the world in 
which Jesus acted; and on the passion and 
resurrection narratives. Through discussion, 
assigned readings, exegetical work and critical 
essays, we help participants to cultivate a sen- 
sitive, critical ear for listening to texts and to en- 
vision the fruitful relations between com- 
mitment and criticism and the relation between 
the complementary tasks of historical recon- 
struction and theological interpretation.

cording to Mark will then be presented as a 
literary, theological and pastoral response to the 
needs of the Markan community. Individual 
pericopes will be studied in themselves as well 
as in relation to the gospel's over-all context. 
Finally, the gospel will be viewed in light of the

Revelation and Faith in Biblical 
and Systematic Perspectives 

How God reveals himself and how humankind 
responds to that revelation in faith are central 
questions in the dialogue between biblical and 
systematic theology. In this course we will ad- 
dress these questions by showing how they arise 
in our contemporary situation, by describing 
how various New Testament texts present God's 
action and humankind's response, by briefly 
discussing how the Reformation and the 
Enlightenment influenced the questions, and by 
examining how contemporary systematic 
theologians explain revelation and faith. We 
shall end by showing how the biblical and 
systematic understandings can influence such 
ministerial activities as preaching, teaching, 
counseling, spiritual direction, liturgical plan- 
ning, etc. Students are expected to have com- 
pleted basic 300-level courses in Bible and to 
have been introduced to Systematic Theology. 
Their responsibilities will include assigned 
readings, personal reflection, active par- 
ticipation in discussion, and an original piece of 
work.

Theology of the Eucharist 

The Church's central ritual will be interpreted in 
its proper quality as a symbolic reality. The 
historical roots of this symbolic action will be 
examined, by looking at the religious signifi- 
cance of sacred meals and, especially, of the 
Jewish table blessings. The distinctively 
Christian dimension of meaning will be sought 
from the New Testament. A brief survey of the 
long history of the Eucharist will provide the 
background for dealing systematically with such 
topics as "the real presence" and the Mass as 
sacrifice. Of special concern is the newly 
rediscovered communal dimension of the 
Eucharist as a ritual action of the entire assem- 
bled community. The theological basis for a 
Eucharistic spirituality will be provided by ex- 
plicitating the Christology and Soteriology im- 
plied in the Eucharistic Prayer and action. For- 
mat: lectures and class discussions on sub- 
stantial weekly readings. Several short papers 
and a concluding examination-essay.

Basic Ethical Theory: Systematic Perspectives 

from Karl Rahner 

A seminar which will follow a sequence of 
readings from Karl Rahner's theology. The 
focus will be on the grounding of ethics in 
theological anthropology, on the manner in 
which such an ethics would be developed (both 
as "individual" and as "social" ethics), and an 
examination of the meaning of such an ap- 
proach as "ontological" within theology. This 
will lead to correlation of this approach with 
more "phenomenological" (or descriptive) ac- 
counts of the moral life in J.M. Gustafson and 
H.R. Niebuhr. The purpose of these readings is 
to exemplify an adequate fundamental 
theological ethics (parallel to the concern of 
David Tracy to outline the constituents of an 
adequate fundamental theology). The approach

Basic Ethical Theory : Christian Phenomenology 

of the Moral Life 

This course will have both theoretical and prac- 
tical foci. On the one hand, it will attempt to 
develop an ethical theory based on a 
phenomenology of emotions and of values. This 
theory will be contrasted with other theories, 
e.g., naturalism, emotivism, ordinary natural 
law theory, deontologism, utilitarianism. The 
interrelations of person, intention, act, object, 
and situation will be explored in a context of 
relativism versus absolutism. Some of the 
meanings of the moral experiences of sin, con- 
science, discernment, duty, love, freedom and 
social groups will be sought. 

On the other hand, practical cases will be 
examined with a view to developing an analytic 
ability to sort out and balance values in con- 
crete cases.

This study of sin and guilt will primarily have a

is to disengage the presence and shape of sin in

ing pastoral response to the findings that 
emerge. Past tradition will be correlated with 
current studies on guilt-laden and "undesirable"

equivalents veiled by different social, political 
and economic arrangements. Special attention 
will be given to the efforts made by religious 
people and thinkers to humanize the brutality of 
enforced systems of work and class distinction. 
The moral response to oppression is rooted in 
experience of oppression, and so the roots for 
moral theory and action will also be examined. 
Participants will share readings and discussion,

vey the historical and social contexts of these 
two men. It will also attempt to analyze the 
roots of the thought of each in the natural law 
tradition. The main work of the seminar will be 
a critical comparison and contrast of the main 
lines of their social and political thought with a 
view toward constructing a contemporary ap- 
proach to questions of social ethics. The 
seminar will focus primarily on discussion of the 
major social /political works of each author.

Women in Ministry 

An introductory course designed for women 
who want to explore the opportunities, pro- 
blems, and concerns encountered by women 
in ministry. Students will be introduced, 
through dialogue and interviews, to the varieties 
of ministries in which women are engaged (e.g., 
chaplaincy, staff and administrative positions, 
pastor, campus ministry). The meaning of or- 
dination, role expectations and the dynamics of 
sexism will be discussed. Special attention will 
be given to preaching, liturgy, theology, and 
counseling from the woman's perspective.

Empathy Skills in Ministry 

This is a basic course in empathy training, i.e., 
learning to better understand what others are 
trying to communicate to us and letting them 
know that we understand. Various exercises, of 
increasing complexity, involve "live" role- 
playing, tape recordings, and videotapes. Some 
attention will be given to basic communication 
theory, but the emphasis is on developing capa- 
city for empathy.

Pastoral Care and Coimseling 

This course will offer a critical and constructive 
approach to the history, theology, methodology, 
and character of pastoral care and counseling. 
We will consider its foundation in human caring 
and the forms of its historical embodiment in 
acts of healing, sustaining, guiding and recon- 
ciling. Focusing on the American pastoral care 
movement of this century, we will give particu- 
lar attention to (a) its growing professionaliza- 
tion and specialization; (b) its place among the 
offices of ministry and its task in relation to the 
purposes of the church; (c) its identity and role 
among the helping professions; (d) its relation 
to the social sciences and modern psychother- 
apy; (e) its relation to broader cultural develop- 
ments. We will assess its achievements, 
strengths, and limitations and examine recent ef- 
forts to rethink the theories and praxis of 
pastoral care and counseling (Browning, Lam- 
bourne, Pruyser). 

The course will include a practicum (role play, 
case studies, videotaping) in pastoral coun- 
seling.

Theology of Penance and Anointing of the Sick 

A systematic grounding of the sacraments of 
reconciliation in the mystery of the Church as 
community of salvation. The chief interest of the 
course is to provide a theological rationale for 
the Church's role in the reconciliation and 
healing of the individual. This will involve an 
interpretation of sin as estrangement, as well as 
a social and sacramental view of salvation. A 
survey of the history of the Church's discipline 
of penance will provide some categories and 
distinctions for a systematic account of the com- 
munity's role in reconciliation. Similarly, an 
overview of the development of Anointing will 
lead to a systematic interpretation of this little- 
understood sacrament. Format: lectures and 
class discussions on substantial weekly readings.

essay.

Communicating the Religious Message in an 

Age of Science 

In this course the following goals will guide the 
study: (1) to introduce students to theologies 
and theologians which seek explicitly to address 
the contemporary scientific and technological 
worldview; (2) to acquaint students with basic 
work in philosophy of science and theological 
methodology which are relevant to such 
theological address; and (3) to assist students 
who are already familiar with matters represent- 
ed by goals (1) and (2) further to advance their 
understandings in these and/or related areas. In 
approaching such goals two methods will be 
emphasized: (1) individual tutorial sessions 
which will help the student to advance at 
his/her own pace, to deal with new per- 
spectives, and to prepare a research paper; and 
(2) seminar sessions which will deal with 
readings corresponding to the first two goals 
mentioned above. Readings in theology may in- 
clude issues such as those raised in Peacock's 
Science and the Christian Experiment, Teilhard 
de Chardin's Phenomenon of Man, Cobb's A 
Christian Natural Theology, as well as those 
treated in selected works of the convenors. 
Readings in the methodology and philosophy of 
science may include issues such as those dealt 
with in Gilkey's Religion and the Scientific 
Future, Barbour's Issues in Science and Religion, 
Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, 
Margenau's Open Vistas. Prerequisites: at least 
two courses in systematic or philosophical

Advanced Seminar in Theology and the 

Sciences | 

The seminar is designed as a forum for papers 
by theological and scientific faculty and ad- 
vanced students. It seeks to move toward a 
theology which is solidly grounded in the best 
of today's scientific understandings and which 
at the same time may be dynamic in eliciting 
religious feelings and behavior characteristic of 
the best Christian tradition whereby persons are 
led to appreciate the reality of God's sovereign- 
ty and grace which are manifest in environing 
nature and in human forms, and to find thereby 
a new meaning, hope, sense of duty, and 
beatific perspective in God's realm. 

Each weekly session will be the occasion for the 
presentation and critical evaluation of one or 
more papers exploring an interpretation of 
historic religious doctrines in the light of the 
sciences. Among the historic religious doctrines 
that may be interpreted are such primary 
Christian categories as God, Creation, Human 
Nature, Sin, Salvation, Church, Revelation, and 
Mission to the World. No specific topic is ex- 
cluded per se, no matter how out of theological 
favor it may presently be or how seemingly in- 
congruous with recent secular doctrine. For the 
seminar, the light of the sciences will be sought 
primarily through focus upon the so-called 



115 



Theological Studies 



"hard" sciences that have provided a new world 
view or "metaphysics." These sciences include, 
physics, biology, sociobiology, and psycho- 
biology. However, this primary focus does not 
exclude perspectives from the psychosocial 
sciences, which will also be heavily involved. At 
the core of this activity the seminar will explore 
and test a basic hypothesis: that recent scientific 
information suggests that evolving psychobiolo- 
gical and sociobiological systems require reli- 
gions as value cores, that the traditional religion 
of each culturetype has been selected for the 
same kinds of life-producing wisdom as have 
been selected in the genotypes for all animal 
organisms and societies, and that all of this is 
generated and selected by a creative system of 
dynamic reality far transcending any of its 
creatures. 

Admission for credit: While the seminar is ex- 
pected primarily to involve the presentation of 
papers by faculty and advanced students, ad- 
mission for credit is also open to other students 
whose proposals for a paper to be presented and 
whose background in theology and science is 
deemed satisfactory by the convenors. High per- 
formance in CCTS T-472 may be deemed suf- 
ficient for admission, and capacity to discuss 
critically and to advance themes such as those 
published in Zygon, Journal of Religion and 
Science would provide excellent grounding for 
any participants in the seminar. 

Admission without credit: Participation is also 
open to Cluster students and faculty who have a 
concern to become more informed about and/ or 
to participate in this research and development 
program without obligating themselves to meet 
the specific course requirements. Such persons 
should inform one of the convenors in advance 
of their intention to participate in this manner. 

Requirements for students taking the seminar 
for credit will be (1) to present an original paper 
of some 20-30 doublespaced pages (during one 
of the last five weeks of the quarter)on a topic 
approved by the convenors and to defend it suc- 
cessfully during its discussion, and (2) to present 
a one or two-page critical and constructive 
analysis of the proceedings of each of the other 
papers and discussions in the seminar sessions.

Ministry to Metropolis: Retrospect and 

Prospect 

An inquiry which seeks to raise again the 
question: "How ought liberal communities of 
faith to structure themselves so as to 
prophetically minister to the contemporary ur- 
ban social order?" A historical retrieve of past 
efforts to develop effective models of religious 
witness in the city, with special attention to the 
urban ministry movement of the 60's, will be un- 
dertaken in order to identify problems and 
possibilities. The theological perspective in- 
forming liberal Protestant public ministry will 
be critically examined and compared to alter- 
native current social-ethical theories and in- 
stitutional strategies for social justice in 
metropolis. Field experiences and interviews in 
the Chicago area will be an integral part of the 
inquiry.

Theories of Moral Development: Studies in 

Conscience and Moral Judgment 

This course will attempt to achieve an un- 
derstanding of the basic developmental theories 
of Lawrence Kohlberg and Erik Erikson and a 
critical awareness of some of their strengths and 
weaknesses. It will explore the implications of 
such developmental theories for ethics, looking 
into such questions as the formation of con- 
science and character development, culture as 
an instrument of formation, education for 
moral development, censorship, and pluralism 
in ethics. The classes will include exercises 
aimed at self-understanding in the light of these 
developmental theories, seminar-style discus- 
sions of readings from selected primary and 
secondary sources, and complementary lectures. 
A short position paper to guide class discussion 
and a longer reflection paper at the end of the 
course will be the normal requirements. Alter- 
native learning projects might be substituted by 
arrangement.

Emotion in Christian Life 

This course will attempt to display the im- 
portance, if not also the priority of the emotions 
in human and Christian living. Attention will be 
given to sources in scripture and tradition as 
well as to current psychological, philosophical 
and theological understandings of emotions. 

A second objective of the course is to analyze in 
detail individual emotions such as, obviously, 
love and hate, but also anger, resentment, fear, 
awe, wonder, anxiety, etc. 

Each student will be expected to participate in 
class discussions, write reaction papers, and 
take responsibility for presenting one or more 
specific emotions.

This will serve as a basis for the second half of 
the course which will consider special ethical 
issues: contraception, celibacy, homosexuality, 
marital love and fidelity.

Intemperance : Moral Evaluation 

Intemperance here is taken to include not only 
issues of alcoholism and drug abuse in our

Pertinent data will serve as the basis of ethical, 
legal and medical assessments. The major con- 
cern is to develop a sensitivity that will help 
fashion a response that meets the requirements 
of Christian ethics. The student will be asked to 
express this concern in a project or paper.

A Survey of Contemporary Moral Problems 

This course will explore the "state of the 
question" on several contemporary moral 
problems of concern to those in ministry. The 
treatment of each topic will be introductory and 
intended to chart the field for further study and 
reflection. Topics surveyed will include sexual 
ethics, cultural formation and sex-role 
stereotypes, institutional membership and

Social Ethics and Violence: War/Revolution 

and Peace 

An exploration, from a theological perspective, 
of the historically developing Christian response 
to that institutionalized violence between 
nations called "war" and to various forms of in- 
tra-national violence connected with 
"revolution." Special attention will be given to 
the efforts made by religious people and 
thinkers to restrain and mitigate the violence of 
war and revolution through the developing "just 
war" theory (as it includes both reasoning about 
jus ad helium and also about jus in hello). The 
moral response to violence is rooted in ex- 
perience of violence, and so the roots for moral 
theory and action will also be examined. Par- 
ticipants will share readings and discussion, and 
each will be asked to give special attention to 
the connection of an historical development to a 
contemporary problem area. A concluding writ- 
ten reflection will be required.

The Church's Peace Ministry: Issues and 

Perspectives 

What can the churches contribute to world 
peace? What understandings of world peace 
might guide religious thought and action toward 
a world without war? What theological and 
political standards are involved in setting limits 
and determining priorities for peace activities? 
How can the concern for world peace become a 
regular part of ministry at every level of church 
life? Eight Chicago-area seminary faculty in- 
cluding the instructors of this course have met 
regularly as the curriculum development task 
force of the World Without War Coun- 
cil — Midwest to design a course addressing these 
questions. The course is expected to treat such 



topics as: the global political conditions for 
peace; the means and limits of citizen action for 
peace in the United States, with special em- 
phasis on the role of the churches; and the 
theological bases for, and meanings of, the 
issues of global politics and citizen action.

Marxist Humanism and Christian Faith 

The course will study the problem of the ac- 
culturation of the christian faith within a 
marxist cultural and political context. The point 
of departure will be the study of possible 
relations between the content of christian hope 
about man and its justification with the content 
of marxist hope about man and its justification. 
To do this the course will try to answer two 
questions: a) what are the challenges that 
marxist humanism brings to a christian concept 
and praxis about man; b) what challenges can a 
renewed christian theology and praxis bring to 
marxist humanism? The course will study key 
concepts and fundamental socio-political struc- 
tures of marxism, approaching them genetically 
and comparatively with correspondent concepts 
and structures in which christian theology and 
praxis has been expressed in western 
Christianity, in view of disclosing their eventual 
capacity to become a cultural expression of 
christian faith and praxis.

Social Ethics and Legal Institutions 

Seminar to explore the relationship between 
ethical theory and practical, contemporary 
problem areas of legal regulation of human ac- 
tivity. An initial examination of selected aspects 
of the "natural law'" tradition and of con- 
trasting legal positivism through common 
readings and discussion, will be followed by 
choice of a particular problem area in legal 
regulation of human activity, preparation of an 
oral presentation, and final written expression 
of some dimension of the participant's reflection 
on the problem. Such questions as criminal cor- 
rection, abortion, prostitution, pornography, 
equal access to the courts, environmental pol- 
lution, planning of mass transportation, commit- 
ment procedures for the mentally ill, civil dis- 
obedience, conscientious objection, military jus- 
tice system, political corruption, use of violence 
by police, can be chosen with a view to evalua- 
ting the present effectiveness of legal regulation 
and to suggesting alternative programs. Maxi-

Cross Cultural Communication: Intensive 

Unit I 

The Intensive Unit has a double major thrust 
which will serve the needs and goals of a wide 
variety of students. On the one hand, it will 
give high priority to those students who desire 
to work or study in another cultural en- 
vironment and will help them acquire beginning 



levels of competence for effective com- 
munication in cultures and subcultures other 
than their own. At the same time, the con- 
centration will provide a wider range of students 
the opportunity to experience in a unique way 
the cultural assumptions and limits of their 
theological thinking, and to lay the foundation 
for a broader international, interracial and 
ecumenical understanding, concern and com- 
mitment both in their theological education as 
well as in their further ministry. For remainder 
of course description see pp. 22-25.

mulation and proclamation. For remainder of

ANNOUNCEMENTS 

CLUSTER LIBRARY SERVICES 

The Cluster supports a vigorous library program which provides many benefits 
to students and faculty. The combined Cluster library collections comprise over 
800,000 volumes and represent one of the largest collections among theological 
consortia in the nation. A Union List of 1700 current periodicals assist Cluster 
library users in locating desired titles, and all Cluster library users have access to 
the Cluster Union Catalog of holdings acquired since July 1972, which is located at 
the Jesuit/Krauss (Lutheran) /McCormick Libraries. The loan of books or 
periodicals between Cluster schools is facilitated by the use of interlibrary facsimile 
devices and a courier system, and direct access to all Cluster libraries is provided 
by a Cluster I.D. card. A staff of twenty library professionals with various subject 
specializations is available to assist users with reference and research problems. 
The Cluster libraries have uniform policies for loan periods, care of reserve books, 
reference books, periodicals and costs for photocopying. 

Other Cluster library cooperative programs that benefit users are a coordinated 
joint acquisitions program for books, periodicals, and monograph series. Begin- 
ning in 1977 the Cluster libraries participate in the services of the Ohio College 
Library Center, a nationally linked, computer based cataloguing operation. 

Beyond the Cluster library resources are those of other Chicago seminaries and 
universities, the Chicago Public Library, Newberry Library, and John Crerar 
Library. All Cluster libraries belong to the Illinois Library and Information Net- 
work (ILLINET) which provides access to statewide library resources as well as the 
bibliographic services of the Ohio College Library Center. 

Each Cluster library has its special strengths or collections. Below is a brief 
description of the kinds of special holdings to be found in the Cluster :

peace studies, and psychological journals. Special collections are the Abraham H.

The Ecumenical Parish Resource Center (EPRC), administered by the Jesuit Krauss

current resources for use in church programs. The Center's resources include more 
than 50 religious education curricula; a special collection of materials pertaining to 
the various functions of the congregation, including worship, stewardship, church 
organization, education and simulation games. Along with such resources, the 
staff of the Center provides unique services in assisting denominational officials, 
pastors, seminary students and laypersons in developing meaningful programs for 
their judicatories, congregations, groups or classes. Interested parties are invited to 
contact the Center for further information. 

The libraries of Bethany and Northern Baptist are a merged library with integrated 
staffs and collections housed on the Bethany campus. 

+ The libraries of Jesuit, Krauss (Lutheran) and McCormick are a joint library with 
integrated staffs and collections housed on the Lutheran campus. 

CLUSTER THEOLOGICAL LANGUAGE COURSES 

In addition to the courses in biblical languages listed among the regular course 
offerings, non-credit courses in French, German and Latin are offered through the 
Cluster during each quarter of the academic year as warranted by student interest. 
The aim of the courses is to assist students to achieve facility in reading theological 
literature in the respective languages. Such facility is frequently employed to fulfill 
language requirements for certain degree programs. A nominal fee is charged. For 
further information contact the Cluster office. 

CLUSTER CENTER FOR THEOLOGY AND MINISTRY IN GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE 

Historical Background. Since its inception the Cluster has embodied a deepening 
commitment to the internationalization of theological education. This commitment 
has expressed itself through such diverse forms as extensive World Mission Study 
course offerings, a unique Cluster Area of Concentration in Cross-Cultural Com- 
munication, an Annual World Mission Institute, seminary-sponsored programs for 
overseas study and for faculty-student exchange with theological schools around 
the world, and various local programs planned by, with, and for international 

153 



students and visiting faculty and lecturers from other nations. 

In order to strengthen its commitment to bring international perspectives to bear 
upon all aspects of theological education within its member schools and to secure 
resources to enhance such endeavors, during 1977 the Cluster has established a 
Center for Theology and Ministry in Global Perspective. Under the leadership of 
its Director and with the continuing assistance of its International Programs Coor- 
dinator and the Cluster Committee on International Programs, the new "Global 
Perspective Center" (GPC) will explore more effective ways of illuminating theolo- 
gical study, ministerial preparation, and continuing education with insights and ex- 
periences of an international character as well as ways of contributing, through the 
identification and elucidation of new theological problems, towards a more effec- 
tive Church ministry in an ever changing world. 

Resources. The GPC offers a rich setting in which to study theology and to begin 
or continue preparation for mission and ministry in a world perspective. Ecumeni- 
cally, the heritages of six Protestant and three Roman Catholic schools of the Clus- 
ter are complemented by those of other theological schools which comprise the 
Chicago Theological Institute (q.v., pp. 158-159). Educationally, the aforemen- 
tioned curricular and extra-curricular resources of the Cluster schools are enhanced 
by those of the Chicago Theological Institute and the University of Chicago, which 
latter provides wide offerings in languages and area studies. Cluster students from 
schools located in Hyde Park enjoy significant tuition reduction for work taken 
concurrently in the University and its Divinity School. 

Cluster World Mission Institute 

The eighth annual Cluster World Mission Institute will be held April 2-6, 1979. 
The theme will be "Christian Faith and Other Faiths." With ecumenical and inter- 
national leadership, the Institute brings together students, missionaries, pastors, 
administrators, and scholars to identify and address problems and concerns that 
are of transcultural and international import. 

Institute topics in recent years have included The Role of the Missionary,

tapes related to previous Institutes may be obtained from the Cluster office. 



CENTER FOR ADVANCED STUDY IN RELIGION AND SCIENCE 

Historical Background. The Center for Advanced Study in Religion and Science 
(CASIRAS) is an independent incorporated institution with an Advisory Board 
comprised of approximately one hundred internationally renowned scholars and 
scientists representing all major disciplines. Since 1970, CASIRAS has developed 
an increasingly close affiliation and effective working relationship with the 
Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools. 

The purposes of such cooperative relationship are to achieve a greater integra- 
tion between the scientific and religious models or images concerning the nature 
and destiny of humans in the context of the reality which created and sustains 
them, thereby to make possible a more effective interpretation of the long-evolved 

154 



wisdom of our religious heritage. The involvement of CASIRAS in the following 
endeavors reflects such purposes. 

Advanced Seminar in Theology and the Sciences. This interschool seminar was 
opened by Meadville/ Lombard Theological School in 1965 under the direction of 
Ralph Wendell Burhoe, and is one of the precursors of interinstitutional Cluster 
faculty and student involvement in an interdisciplinary research project. The 
seminar and related conferences have provided Cluster personnel with op- 
portunities for small-group discussion of new insights from the sciences for un- 
derstanding human nature and destiny with such internationally distinguished 
scientists (including some Nobel Prize winners) as: H. Stanley Bennett, J. 
Bronowski, Sanborn C. Brown, Donald T. Campbell, Theodosius Dobzhansky, 
Alfred E. Emerson, Sir John Eccles, Clifford Geertz, Benson E. Ginsburg, Garrett 
Hardin, Dwight J. Ingle, Aharon Katchalasky-Katzir, Hermann Joseph Muller, 
Michael Polanyi, Van Rensselaer Potter, C. L. Prosser, Arnold Ravin, Harlow 
Shapley, Sol Tax, and Anthony F. C. Wallace. Many of the papers shared by such 
scholars in the seminar have been published in Zygon or elsewhere and represent 
keys to new breakthroughs of the wall separating religious and scientific un- 
derstanding. Local and other theological faculty have also employed the seminar as 
a forum for presenting outstanding papers which foster pioneering understandings 
of a more positive relation of religion and science and which, upon publication, 
constitute a growing literature for such breakthroughs. The current offering, CCTS 
T-572: Advanced Seminar in Theology and Sciences, is described on pp. 115-116. 

Fellows and Associates. A limited number of theologians and scientists from 
local as well as from West and East Coast institutions have been appointed Fellows 
and Associates of CASIRAS, sometimes for a sabbatical year, where they have 
written papers and books with the benefit and guidance and critical review by 
others associated with the Center. Several ministers have also come to CASIRAS 
as Associates for extended periods of continuing education. Their studies have 
similarly led to significant papers in the field, some of which have been published. 

Courses. From its inception CASIRAS has provided team-taught courses for 
Cluster students pursuing basic professional diegrees. In 1970-71 the Center 
pioneered in organizing the Cluster's first year-long sequence, "Man and His En- 
vironment," which involved 12 faculty from 5 seminaries and an ecologist from a 
neighboring university, together with some 20 students from 5 schools. Other in- 
terinstitutionally team-taught courses have followed and a description of the 
current offering, CCTS T-472 : Communicating the Religious Message in an Age of 
Science, may be found on p. 115. 

In addition to offering courses on the basic professional degree level, CASIRAS 
has been involved in thesis advising for advanced academic degrees. Moreover, 
from the outset CASIRAS has participated with faculties of Cluster schools in 
academic planning, including the development of (1) professional degree programs 
for students preparing for ministry and for clergy engaged in continuing 
education; (2) academic doctoral studies for future teachers and researchers within 
the framework of existing degree programs in the Cluster schools; and (3) post- 
doctoral programs for faculty. 

Conferences and Symposia. For many years CASIRAS, together with its af- 
filiated membership society, the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science (IRAS), 
has organized conferences and symposia on religion and the sciences. 

Publishing. CASIRAS and IRAS are the joint publishers of Zygon, Journal of 
Religion and Science, edited by Ralph W. Burhoe. The journal has been published 

155 



at the University of Chicago Press since 1966; its editorial offices are housed with 
the Cluster. Communications from religious and scientific personnel indicate that 
this journal, whose back-issue sales have been highest among the 33 journals of the 
University Press, constitutes an unusually valuable resource for those concerned 
with the new thrust to vitalize the religious message by rejoining religious and 
scientific knowledge. 

Guided Research and Study. CASIRAS makes available through the Cluster op- 
portunities which are unique among American theological schools for guided 
research and study in the area of theology and the sciences.

INSTITUTE ON THE CHURCH IN URBAN-INDUSTRIAL SOCIETY 

The Institute on the Church in Urban-Industrial Society (ICUIS), based at Mc- 
Cormick Theological Seminary, was established in 1966 by the Presbyterian Insti- 
tute of Industrial Relations in cooperation with the Advisory Group on Urban and 
Industrial Mission, Commission on World Mission and Evangelism, World Coun- 
cil of Churches. While retaining these historic relationships, during 1975 ICUIS has 
become located with the Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools and has 
established relationships with a wider range of American Denominations. 

The Advisory Group on Urban and Industrial Mission, W.C.C., "recognized the 
Institute on the Church in Urban-Industrial Society as the one centre mandated by 
it to provide information and consultation on training facilities for urban and in- 
dustrial ministries as well as an international reference centre for literature and 
programme information in this field." In line with this mandate ICUIS performs a 
variety of data-collecting and program-resourcing functions. 

As a center for the gathering of information, ICUIS provides an information 
bank which draws upon a continuing flow of case studies, project reports, articles, 
correspondence, books and other materials coming out of the church's involve- 
ment in the issues of urbanization, technological change, international justice 
and human development. This material is selected, annotated, indexed and 
distributed among a world-wide network in a monthly Abstract Service and a 
bibliographic service. Any of the more than 5,000 items in the ICUIS files, which 
are cross-indexed topically and geographically, can be retrieved upon request. 
Retrieval is facilitated by a regular Quarterly Index to the Abstract Service. The 
ICUIS information system is backed by over 100 file drawers of materials on 
issues, projects and studies on urban-industrial mission. 

Besides linking people engaged in the church's world-wide urban -industrial 
mission through information exchange, the resources of ICUIS have been used 

as models of involvement by those engaged in urban-industrial and metropolitan 
mission programs around the world; 

as teaching material by seminary and college professors in courses on church and 
society, the theology of mission, metropolitan and regional development, tech- 
nology and culture, and in continuing education and action training programs; 

as research material for students in courses or projects related to the church's 

involvement in social issues ; 
as a program resource by women's associations, couples' clubs, and young adult 

156 



groups in issues related to the international dimensions of urbanization and 
technological change; 
as the basis for mission institutes and orientation programs for those going over- 
seas or for those returning from overseas assignments and for overseas persons 
assigned to ICUIS for periods of specialized study and action; 
as the basis for preparing bibliographies and program materials for special pro- 
gram emphases of church agencies. 

The resources of ICUIS are available to church agencies and local churches 
through the Abstract Service and other publications of ICUIS which provide up- 
to-date information on the international dimensions of the church's 
urban-industrial mission; 
through the indexed material and the background files which provide program 
resources on the issues of metropolitan and technological change world- 
wide ; 
through consultation services to help plan institutes, seminars and conferences 
on the issues and the action involved in the internationalization of 
mission; 
through orientation programs for people going overseas in the service of the 
church or of secular agencies, and week-end seminars for local 
churches. 

Ministers in Industry Program 

Ministers in Industry has for many years been a consciousness-raising and ex- 
perience-expanding summer work-seminar program aimed at putting seminary 
students in touch with life in industry. During the summer of 1979, the eight-week 
program will deal with "Work Issues in Contemporary Society." The program's 
main purpose will be to focus students' attention on the ethos created by U.S. 
technology and the American productive system. 

Students are employed as wage earners in factories and service jobs during 'the 
day, and participate in a 3-hour seminar each week. The seminar portion of the 
program deals with the political, social, ethnic, racial, and economic issues faced 
by wage earners; with on-the-job problems; with full employment issues; with the 
effectiveness of the trade unions in democratizing the industrial process; and with 
the international impact of U.S. economic decisions. 

Content of the seminar discussions will be provided by observations and reflec- 
tions stemming from students' respective work situations and by preparatory 
readings. Each participant is expected to concentrate his or her attention on a given 
area of industrial experience, as reflected in the major issues noted above, and to 
prepare a paper on this particular issue. 

The seminar sessions will be led by Prof. Poethig, who will provide an outline 
and content analysis of each issue; each student will speak to the issue which he or 
she has chosen, reflecting on what has been learned in the work experience and in 
the readings. Where needed, outside expertise will also be drawn in. 

Students should plan to begin their summer employment by June 12, 1979, or as 
soon thereafter as possible. The orientation session will be held Thursday, June 8, 
and the final seminar will be held during the week ending August 4. Students who 
desire may continue their jobs beyond the conclusion of the seminar. All papers 
will be due no later than August 31. Evaluation will be based upon seminar per- 

157 



formance, the paper, and work performance (in consultation with the labor 
relations or personnel department of the factory in which the student has worked). 

Enrollment is open to students who have completed one year of study at any ac- 
credited theological seminary. While the program is offered for 4 quarter hours 
credit, additional academic and/or clinical credit may be negotiated. Tuition for 
the program is payable to McCormick Theological Seminary at its regular rate for 
the number of credit hours sought. Applications for admission may be obtained in 
the office of the dean or registrar at each Cluster school or from ICUIS, and should 
be submitted to ICUIS by May 12, 1979.

Industrial Society, 5700 S. Woodlawn Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60637. Phone:

CHICAGO THEOLOGICAL INSTITUTE 

The Chicago Cluster of Theological Schools enjoys a cordial and fruitful 
working relationship with the Chicago Theological Institute (CTI), which is a con- 
sortium of five theological schools located in the northern metropolitan area of the 
city. The member institutions of CTI are Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary 
(United Methodist), North Park Theological Seminary (Evangelical Covenant), 
Seabury-Western Theological Seminary (Episcopal), Trinity Evangelical Divinity 
School (Evangelical Free) and St. Mary of the Lake Seminary (Roman Catholic), 
an associate member. Each of these five institutions embodies a unique theological 
tradition or denominational affiliation which complements and enriches those 
represented among the nine schools of the Cluster. 

By common agreement between the two consortia students other than those pur- 
suing academic doctorates in each member school enjoy tuition-free cross- 
registration privileges in all other member schools. Most Cluster students thus 
have broad functional access without additional fees to significant curricular 
resources in fourteen theological schools which collectively represent a richness 
and diversity of ecumenical perspectives and theological traditions unduplicated in 
any other local setting. 

The procedures for cross-registering into CTI schools are identical to those for 
cross-registering into Cluster schools. Information regarding CTI course descrip- 
tions and schedules is available in the office of the dean and registrar at each 
Cluster school. Such information may also be obtained from the office of the dean 
or registrar of the respective CTI schools :

CHICAGO AREA COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES 

In addition to certain informal cooperative agreements which the Chicago 
Cluster of Theological Schools and its member institutions enjoy with various 
colleges and universities in the metropolitan area, one or more Cluster schools en- 
joy formal relationships with various local institutions of higher education. 
Through such relationships students at the respective seminaries enjoy correspon- 
dingly expanded and enriched educational offerings as well as a variety of signifi- 
cant benefits which may include participation in joint-degree programs; tuition 
reduction for course work; library privileges; and access to health services, 
cultural activities, and recreation facilities. 

The local colleges and universities with whom the respective Cluster schools en- 
joy such relationships are the following: 

DePaul University (DIT) 

Loyola University (JSTC, MTS) 

University of Chicago (CTS, CTU, JSTC, LSTC, M/L, MTS) 

University of Illinois at Chicago Circle (MTS) 

George Williams College (NBTS) 

Rosary College (MTS) 

Wheaton College (NBTS) 

Full particulars on these several relationships may be obtained by consulting the
